Getting Gazela ready to sail

A huge thank you goes out to everyone who pitched in to assemble the rig and make crane day on May 15 at the Navy Yard a success. By the end of the day, the masts were re-stepped and the ship was moved back to Penn’s Landing.

The task of attaching and tuning the standing rigging, as well us sending up the spars, prepping and painting, and a myriad of other tasks to get her ship-shape is underway.
